Police: Medical Issue Leads to Truck Crashing Through Parking Lot, Hitting Parked Vehicles With People In Them
Darren Doyle, story:
Tragedy was narrowly avoided yesterday in Brownsville when a pickup veered off the roadway into a parking lot, crashing into a dumpster and two other vehicles, according to the Brownsville Police.
According to Brownsville Police, Stephen Brown (58) of Plano, was headed north on Washington Street just past City Hall when he apparently suffered a medical episode that caused him to veer his truck off the left side of the roadway and to enter the rear parking lot of the Main Street Center.
Police said Brown's Dodge pickup first crashed into a guy wire of a utility pole in the DAV parking lot, then into Main Street Center parking lot where the truck first hit a garbage dumpster. Police said the dumpster was smashed into the side of a parked C&A Plumbing pickup truck where Trevor Roof (22), a C&A employee, was in the bed of the truck, cleaning it out into the dumpster. According to police, another C&A employee, Travis Graham (33), was standing on the opposite side of the truck and narrowly missed being trapped between the truck and a parked Nissan Versa. The C&A truck smashed into the Versa, knocking both Roof and Graham to the ground, police said. The owner of the Versa was also standing nearby but was reportedly uninjured.
All three individuals involved were transported to the hospital via Edmonson EMS with non-life threatening injuries. The Brownsville Police Department worked the incident and members of the Brownsville Fire Department helped at the scene.
